*** ETHERIA 2011 DIGITAL DOWNLOAD RELEASE***
this year Dyonisis gathered a collection of Sheffield's finest acoustic
artists and put on an intimate and atmospheric gig called Etheria. It
attracted fans of dark acoustic music from around the country and we
indulged ourselves on dark chocolate cherries, amazing music and quality
beers. The Red House venue recorded the sets and, such was the talent
onstage that night, that we considered putting some live recordings
from the night up for free dwonload so that we could share a taste of
the event with others.
sadly, things changed and my uncle became diagnosed with Pancreatic
Cancer. At the time of writing he is still alive, although not expected
to make it through the weekend. I was previously unaware of how low
the survival rate for this cancer is (the lowest of all cancers in the
UK - just 3% of those diagnosed survive 5 years). Naturally, feeling
so helpless in the face of his diagnosis I've wanted to do something
to help raise awareness and fund research.
the light of this, the acts involved kindly agreed to let me put their
music up for paid download - at £4
for 12 tracks of quality music from Sieben, Dyonisis,
Fallen Trees, Actual Midgets, Diz Carberry and Hungarian Lanterns. 100%
of the proceeds will go to the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund
(Registered charity No. 1103253).
consider buying this ep. It's a cause in much need of funding and attention.
Furthermore Etheria was a stunning night of great music - you will more
than get your £4 worth - believe me!

Many thanks for taking the time to read this
1. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all UK cancers
– only 3% of those diagnosed survive 5 years or more. This rate
has not changed in 40 years.
2. It is the fifth most common cause of cancer death in the UK.
3. Nearly 8,000 people each year are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer
in the UK. It affects men and women in roughly equal proportions.
4. There is no early detection test for pancreatic cancer and treatment
is limited. Because symptoms are initially vague and generally don’t
appear until the disease is well advanced, most people are diagnosed
when the disease is advanced. As a result, average survival time from
diagnosis to death is six months.
5. Research into pancreatic cancer is under-funded compared with many
other types of cancer. Pancreatic cancer causes 5% of cancer deaths
but receives only 1% of research funding.
6. Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund (Registered Charity No. 1103253)
is a national charity founded in 2004 by Maggie Blanks after the death
of her husband from the disease in 2003. It is the only national charity
exclusively funding research into pancreatic cancer, and funds innovative
research in institutions throughout the UK.
